Pediatric X-Rays

Getting a Better Picture

Digital x-rays help diagnose cavities while they are tiny, often allowing for less invasive treatment. If they are caught early enough, decay may be stopped with some minor changes to your child’s home care routine.

Using digital x-rays, our doctors can look for teeth that haven’t erupted yet, make sure your child’s jaws and teeth are developing well, and monitor whether orthodontic treatment will be needed in the future.

At Sweet Tooth Smiles Dentistry and Orthodontics in Richmond, TX, we want your child to be completely safe during their appointments. Today’s digital x-rays expose your child to less radiation than ever before. Lead aprons and taking x-rays only when necessary further reduce your child’s exposure.
